    Regular Dental Visits

  • Schedule routine dental check-ups to include oral cancer screenings as part of your preventive care.

  • Dentists visually inspect the lips, tongue, gums, throat, and oral tissues for any abnormalities or signs of cancer.
  • Look for changes in color, texture, or shape that may indicate potential issues.
  • Palpation of Oral Tissues

  • Risk Assessment

  • Dentists assess risk factors such as tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, HPV infection, and sun exposure.
  • Understanding risk factors aids in determining the need for additional screening or preventive measures.
  • Patient Education

  • Dentists educate patients on the signs and symptoms of oral cancer and the importance of self-examination.
  • Encourage patients to report any unusual changes or symptoms promptly for further evaluation.
  • Follow-up Evaluation

    I am very pleased with Town Center Family Dental in Hillsborough NJ. I have been a patient of the practice for over four years. The dental treatment and services are state of the art and performed with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. I have had some interim dental issues between my six-month scheduled cleanings. These issues have been addressed immediately. I have never had to wait to get an appointment or the matter not taken care of in a timely manner. The insurance/billing office is equally efficient looking into out-of-pocket cost and communicating that to the patient. Staff here are very professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. They are a comprehensive dental practice.
